S3 present at ICAO/UNOOSA SYMPOSIUM 2016

This symposium was a continuation of the 1st joint ICAO and UNOOSA Aerospace Symposium held in ICAO Headquarters, Montréal in March 2015, with the theme of Emerging space activities and civil aviation – challenges and opportunities

During that event, it was clear that there was a need to prepare, educate and bring-together the aviation and space communities.

President of the ICAO Council, Dr. Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu said at the symposium that ICAO "recognizes that sub-orbital and outer space flights will foster new tourism and transport markets, and that investments in related research and development remain at a very healthy level". Dr. Aliu has declared that states, international organizations and other stakeholders should work together to ensure that regulations and policies necessary to support space travel are in place within the next 5 years. Rules must be put in place soon to ensure safety and security in space, as well as prevent the creation of a patchwork of regulations by individual states. ICAO suggested adapting the existing regulatory framework for aviation, for which the agency and national governments are responsible.

Swiss Space Systems welcomes this positive development at an international level, as the involvement of a UN agency in the regulation of suborbital flights is the first step towards reaching legal certainty for states and the industry. S3 has been calling from the inception of the ICAO/UNOOSA joint collaboration, and by its presence at both Aerospace Symposia, for the establishment of a solid regulatory framework -based on global harmonized standards- to regulate suborbital flights. It has emphasized the high importance of the adaptation of existing aviation standards to suborbital flights in order to ensure the maximum levels of safety.
